Well, then! Almost 600,000 words for the year and I have finally finished the first draft of a new book among all the fragments! It’s taken me almost 12 months for this one, about four re-starts, a bunch of umm’s and ahh’s, a whole lot of emotional energy, and some literal tears. But, it is done! I have a new 86,000-or-so word YA draft for the Trouble with Hate is…
Leilani Granger can’t stand the person Casper Drake has become, and Casper doesn’t even recognise his best mate’s little sister anymore. Loving each other is second-nature, but they don’t know how not to hate each other either.
But, after one night of a deeper connection than either of them were ready for, the lines between the emotional and the physical start to blur.
Leilani wasn’t the kind to lose herself in meaningless sex.
Casper’s been doing it for years.
It’s the only time hate doesn’t get in the way.
But, the trouble with hate is…it’s often not hate at all.
It’s off with the first lot of beta readers. So, now, here comes the editing phase!
BTW, if you’re interested in becoming a beta reader, feel free to get in touch or shoot me an email! The more the merrier 🙂
